Overall the food, staff, and service were ok. It is a smaller location, so probably not best for larger groups-we had 6 and a baby. Mind you, it was a Sunday brunch time and is one of their more busy service hours. Our food came...More

Small casual diner that features NOLA style food. Small gumbo was huge and filled with seafood. A meal all it’s own. I was skeptical about ordering the beignets because I’ve really never had any that compare to Cafe du Mond but these were excellent. We...More

We love bignettes and coffee for breakfast. They have good size, fresh ones that are smothered in powdered sugar. A good crowd. Service was great and attentive. You can see the Seawall just across the street.

Was expecting more home style cooking and authenticity. Pistollettes has nice sauce and flavor but just served on hard beignets - thought it the crawfish was supposed to be stuffed into something else. Ordered a Diner Melt without bread, got a cold slab of American...More
